Consumer Rights Act 2015
Buying a new car is an exciting thing to do but it’s also a bit scary because new cars cost a lot of money. Thankfully there are consumer rights in place that make the transaction less of a lottery so you can buy with confidence. These rights apply no matter if you’re buying a new car or a used one if you purchase from a dealer, however they offer less protection when buying privately or through an auction.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 states that an item must be “of a satisfactory quality”, be “fit for purpose” and it also has to be “as described”. You have the right to reject anything that’s faulty and get a full refund within 30 days of purchase. If you let 30 days lapse, you will have less rights and you may only be able to ask the seller to repair the broken product.
